All copy should be submitted via email attachment in Microsoft Word or Open Word format; 12 pt Times Roman, 1.5 line spacing. No articles are accepted as hard copy (say through the post).
Titles of books (e.g. Burmese Days) and newspapers/journals (e.g. Tribune) should be italics (and never in capital letters).
Chapters of books, articles in newspapers and magazines have double inverted commas either side (e.g. “Why I Write”) but are never italicised.
Quotes are given as….He said: “Orwell is probably the greatest journalist of the twentieth century.” (notice use of colon, not comma, before the quote).
Inverted commas are always double except when needed inside double quotes when they become single.
Spellings should always follow English (rather than US) conventions. So organisation (not organization); humour (not humor), defence (not defense) etc.
Punctuation follows UK (not US) conventions. So, for instance, UK convention is:
He said Orwell was “the greatest journalist of the twentieth century”.
In the US it’s Orwell was “the greatest journalist of the twentieth century.”
Nineteen Eighty-Four is our style for the title of the book. Only in the American context can it be 1984
